Excerpt: My dad loves football, but he finds football video games too complicated. I can't really blame him either; I've tried to get him into Madden , but when you really break the 800 LB gorilla of a gaming franchise down, it's tough to explain; even if it is second nature when playing. That's exactly why NFL Blitz works so well -- it's America's favorite game (Yeah, that's right, I said it baseball) boiled down to its most basic elements.
Summary: NFL Blitz 2012 reboots the Blitz franchise for those who find games like Madden a little too complicated. It's still fun, but some questionable decision making and lack of attention to detail make it pretty much just average.
Pros: New Gauntlet Mode adds some spice to the game, Commentary is occasionally hilarious
Cons: No more extracurricular activity, Not a great deal of depth, Can be too simplistic
